This little guy was easy and fun to make. I keep referring to my "best thanksgiving crafts for kids" list that I made last Thanksgiving. It was essentially a list of crafts I wanted to do, but didn't get around to last year. So far this year, we have tackled a few projects like the thumbprint turkeys.
However, as is usually the case, she grew tired of this project after glueing one feather on. So I finished it. Then she asked if we could glue sequins onto it--why not? I gave her the glue and she happily glued a few down until the dried glue on her fingers was more interesting than the actual craft.
So, to finish, I placed the glue dots and she then put a sequin on top.
So I moved him up here--which was really hard to get a picture of. But I'm glad I did, because a few days later, he jumped off the ledge and lost a few feathers in the process. Nothing a little hot glue can't fix.
While not about turkeys in particular, this is the one new Thanksgiving book that we got this year. Cranberry Thanksgiving by Harry Devlin
We are also enjoying Over the River and Through the Wood which we got last year--a song book is always nice!
Over the River: A Turkey's Tale
Which leads me to this book which I have not read, but actually goes with the turkey craft that we did together. I will be looking for this one next year! Has anyone read it? What do you think? Worth checking out?
Linking to pink hippo party and these parties...
